Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note

While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:

  1. Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.

Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

You may notice below that we have switched to using HTML (HyperText Markup Language) format for listing files at FTP sites. We are doing that as a slow progression toward making TidBITS more compatible with the World-Wide Web (WWW). The basic format is easy to figure out - a listing, called a URL or Universal Resource Locator, can look like one of these two possibilities (the difference being that the first one points at a file, whereas the second points at a directory):

ftp://host-name/directory-path/file-name
ftp://host-name/directory-path/

If you use NCSA Mosaic heavily, you can easily copy that line, switch to Mosaic, from the File menu choose Open URL, and paste the URL into the dialog box to retrieve the file via Mosaic. Of course, it might be easier to use the information in Fetch or TurboGopher or just plain Unix FTP.
